“IT’S ABOUT THE JOURNEY”
What does that really mean? One meaning for me is that I spend a lot of time driving. I wondered how much of my life had been spent in a car, waiting to get “there”? When I bought my Corvette recently, I knew for sure that the journey was sometimes even more awesome than the destination itself! So, whatever I do from here on in, is to make the journey more fun!
“The Journey” also runs deeper than that. We all have a notion when we are younger as to where and what we want to be when we “grow up”. The world was a much different place when I began my adult journey back in the early 1980’s. Just starting out on the technology wave, I thought I was set for life. But the world started to drastically change with divestitures, mergers, acquisitions, outsourcing jobs, outsourcing manufacturing added to the technical revolution of the Internet and other technologies.
I had heard of too many people dying of heart attacks the day after they retired, so I decided to travel and have as many adventures as possible as early in life as possible. I was not going to postpone until retirement. I traveled, adventured and lived in the Rocky Mountains, the North East and the South East. In Colorado, I had my own Internet Marketing business helping struggling tourism related industries bring more customers to their area.
As with all that has changed in the last 40 years, it is no longer possible to have the same destination as before. So, I put the RV in drive to explore the next place on my National Park bucket list, Great Smoky Mountain National Park area.
Now I am using a lifetime of gathered wisdom to continue and share the adventure, educate people and small businesses on Internet Safety, promote technology to school aged children, host musical jam sessions, guide cycling tours, and to provide a gentle approach to new gun ownership for self-protection and sporting fun!
Let’s find adventure, education and fun in and around Wears Valley, Cades Cove, Smoky Mountain National Park and beyond…
